Re: why is 6yr old so annoyed by my babies crying

I have 4 kids, ages 8,7,3, and 19 months (pg w/ a 5th). We have 900sq feet and 3 bedrooms. My oldest has mild autism.
The school won't (usually) help you unless he is having the same issues at school AND they are having an educational impact.
I am NOT NOT NOT saying or hinting that your son has autism when I suggest this next thing. Kids with autism almost always have sensory issues. I would check YahooGroups for a local autism support group or the ASA (autism society of america) and ask them where to get a sensory evaluation in your area. Again- NOT saying it is autism or anywhere on the spectrum. ONLY saying those mommas will be able to help you find a talented person to help you correctly identify and (most importantly) COPE with any sensory disorder your son may be challenged by.

((hugs momma)) and listen to your gut.
Kim, mom of 5
